3D Photographic Simulation Brings a New Dimension for Prospective Patients
Are you considering a cosmetic procedure but want to know exactly how you will look before you make the final decision? Aesthetica is now one of the only practices in the region with three-dimensional (3D) photography to allow prospective patients to preview what they will look like after surgery.
Using this advanced VECTRA 3D imaging system allows us to provide our patients with a complete education possible regarding their cosmetic procedures. Using this system, we take a three-dimensional photograph prior to surgery. We then create 3D representations of how you could look after surgery. This allows you the opportunity to preview various surgical options, and decide on the procedure that best suits your personal goals.
VECTRA 3D is used for breast augmentations, breast lifts, body contouring, rhinoplasty, chin augmentations and more. The entire process takes only a few minutes, and you will have the opportunity to review the results during your initial consultation. At that time you can request alternative simulations to be sure you are comfortable with the recommended surgical plan.
What to Expect
- Your VECTRA 3D simulation experience begins with a picture session in our office. This creates the starting point for your aesthetic consultation.
- Using special simulation software on your 3D picture, we will show you the possible results of the aesthetic procedures you may choose to have. You will be able to experiment with different looks until you find the one you want.
- Once you have decided on the appearance you want, this simulation will provide a basis for your surgical plan. Because you have already seen the result, you can be confident in the outcome of the procedure.
Frequently Asked Questions about Breast Implants
Will I be able to see how different implants look on me?
Yes. You will be able to see how you would look with different size and types of implants. You will also be able to see the possible benefits of a breast lift in conjunction with the augmentation.
How close will the simulated result be to the actual result?
Actual results will be very similar to the simulations. VECTRA simulations are based on the actual implants that Dr. Chang will use.
Will this software allow Dr. Chang to see that my breasts are different sizes?
VECTRA software includes special tools to show the size and position of each breast. Breast asymmetry is very common, and VECTRA analysis helps us develop a surgical plan that will compensate for it if necessary.
Am I a good candidate for breast augmentation surgery?
That is a decision you will make with Dr. Chang. VECTRA 3D can show you the possibilities of the procedure, but is not intended as a substitute for a medical consultation.
Frequently Asked Questions about Rhinoplasty
I want to see myself with different noses before making a commitment. How will I know how what my face will really look like?
With VECTRA 3D, you will see a highly detailed visual representation that incorporates real-time images of your own features. You will be able to see your face from several different angles.
How is VECTRA 3D different than just selecting a nose from before-and-after photos?
A VECTRA 3D consultation allows patients to approach their cosmetic surgery with the confidence of knowing exactly what their final results will be long before any incisions are made.
How will I know I’m not making the wrong choice?
Seeing these images before undergoing surgery can help significantly reduce any stress or worries about your post-surgery appearance. With VECTRA, there is virtually no risk of miscommunication between surgeon and patient.
